You might also like to try this WREATH PIN. All you need to make it is lace strips from 8-12 inches long ( be sure the lace has some holes in it to thread the pipe-cleaner through), a six inch piece of pipe cleaner, tacky glue, red or green ribbon for a bow, safety pin.
2. Wrap the ends of the pipe cleaner together to form a circle and tightly wind the ends so they don’t catch on the lace. Spread out the lace to form the wreath. You may have to tug a bit to get it to look uniform. Use a drop of glue to bind the edges together.
3. Use a piece of red or green ribbon to make a small bow and glue it to the front of the wreath as shown. When dry, you will need to stitch a safety pin on the back to make sure it stays. OR…you can turn it into a magnet by gluing a piece of magnetic strip instead. (See the photo on the right).
